Shanghai, China – From 29 – 31 August 2023, Shanghai Intelligent Building Technology (SIBT), Shanghai Smart Home Technology (SSHT) and the Shanghai Smart Office Technology (SSOT) zone are returning to empower the development and promote a better quality of life. The fairs expect to host around 400 exhibitors across 30,000 square metres of the Shanghai New International Expo Centre. An array of specialised forums will be offered to explore popular topics across different areas. These include new energy development, energy saving and the dual control system on energy consumption and intensity.
Running under the themes of “Smart connection” and “Smart frontier”, the fairs aim to inspire the creation of new ideas, technologies, and solutions across various smart industries. Experts and scholars from the fields of facility management, power electronics, parking, new energy vehicles charging and more will share their insights in multiple sectors. Forums with a focus on energy saving and dual carbon include:
- China International Summit on Smart Facility Management
Organised by Tongji University Facility Management Research Institute and the CRE&FM Alliance, the summit will bring together experts from the fields of facility management, energy and sustainability to discuss the latest developments, challenges and opportunities of intelligent facility management. They will also share insights around how smart facility management can help to achieve the goals of achieving carbon peak and carbon neutrality.
- Shanghai International Forum on Smart Home Energy Efficiency Control and Household Energy Management
This year, SIBT and SSHT will be co-located with PCIM Asia for the first time, aiming to push the boundaries of what is possible with smart technology. The fairs are jointly organising a forum where representatives from leading companies, including LAZZEN, Power Integrations and Mitsubishi Electric, will delve into industry trends across various sectors. For example, leveraging the connectivity and energy-saving capabilities of smart home systems through power electronics technology, and highlighting the development of smart home energy management.
- Development of Integrated Construction of Parking and Charging Summit
Parking China is scheduled to take place alongside SIBT and SSHT once again. As car parks are an important part of urban infrastructure, the parking industry naturally has a close connection to the building industry. Through this summit, discussions will focus on the standards, urban planning and industrial application of charging and swapping facilities as well as orderly charging technology.
Other highlights include “Forum of 2023 KNX Smart Home and Building Control Technology – The Development and Future of KNX Energy Efficiency and Management” and “EnOcean Energy Harvesting Wireless Solutions for Energy-efficient and Smart Spaces”.
The forums will also explore how digitisation and smart technologies can be used to overcome the current challenges faced by different industries, reduce energy consumption and other operational costs and promote the applications of smart technology. Forums related to different smart technology applications include:
- Development of Smart Education and New Infrastructure Forum
- The Meadin Smart Hotel Development Forum 2023
- Smart Administration Forum
Comfortable living and working spaces are likely to lead to a higher standard of living. In spatial design, considering the use of smart technology can enhance both the user experience and the efficiency of the work.
